What is a Directive to Physicians?
A Directive to Physicians is an essential element of an effective estate plan. The document notifies health care professionals of your desires should your condition become terminal or irreversible.
While I have discussed these possibilities with clients, the thing that is consistent among them is that most have a clear opinion about what should be done, and most have not discussed it with their families.
It would be tragic to suffer either of these conditions. More tragic for sure, however, is a family struggling to decide what to do about the situation.
This document is a clear statement of your wishes that tells health care providers exactly what should be done and takes one less burden off your family should the unthinkable occur.
